Pharrell Williams is set to have a fantastic first weekend of March 2014. He’ll be taking the stage on Hollywood’s biggest night to perform his Oscar-nominated single “Happy” from Despicable Me 2 during the Oscar broadcast on March 2nd and on March 3rd his new album, G I R L, will be released.
“When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind,” says Pharrell. “One was the sense of overwhelming honor that I felt when I realized that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamt of making. Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent. And three, I instantly knew it would be called G I R L. I hope you like it.”
Seven-time Grammy winner Pharrell just performed at the NBA All-Star Game, will be performing “Happy” at the BRIT Awards, and is scheduled to perform on Germany’s Wetten Das and France’s Le Grand Journal.
“Happy” has sold more the 2.3 million copies and is #1 on the iTunes Songs chart. The single also marks the highest-charting Oscar-nominated song of the past decade, according to Columbia Records.
